Marysville-Pilchuck will play Ballard, the No. 7 seed from the Metro League, at home Friday at 7 to open postseason play after earning the top seed in Wesco with a 52-3 thrashing of Snohomish last Friday.

Snohomish, 5-4, was the top seed from the Wesco South, while M-P, 9-0, won the North.

Senior tailback Jordan Justice got M-P off to a quick start with 53-yard and 36-yard scoring runs in the first quarter.

After senior quarterback Jake Elwood scored from 1 yard, he then threw a pass to senior receiver Dillon Kuk, who ran it in for the 47-yard play. Justice scored again from 32 yards, before the Panthers ended the half with their only points, a 43-yard field goal.

In the third quarter, Elwood threw another TD pass, this one for 34 yards to senior tight end Terren Pablo. Senior kicker Edgar Martinez also connected on a 29-yard field goal that period.

Justice scored his fourth TD of the game in the last quarter, this time on a 60-yard interception return.

On offense, Justice only carried the ball 7 times for 142 yards. Sophomore fullback Dylan Carson rushed for 73 yards on 9 tries.

The two scoring passes were the only completions for Elwood in 8 attempts.

Dominic Andrews scored on a 30-yard fumble return to put MG on the board, followed by a 5-yard Smith run and Olson’s 33-yard reception from QB Caleb Blonk. Phillip Melomey scored on a 9-yard run before Smith scored from 7 yards. Cameron Hazelwood hit a 32-yard field goal to end the scoring.

Blonk was 7 for 10 passing for 119 yards. Austin Byron ran the ball 4 times for 52 yards.
